Historical Preservation of the Hotel
Why Support Us?
Fondly known as “The White Queen of the Gulf,” the rambling Belleview Biltmore is an ageless grand dame that has welcomed presidents, business tycoons, European royalty, and home-grown aristocrats since 1897. During World War II, the elegant Belleview was pressed into service to provide housing for the U.S. Army-but as soon as the war ended, the hotel resumed its familiar role as a favored vacation retreat for VIPs, movie stars and sports icons.
Today, the Belleview Biltmore is still one of West Florida’s most picturesque and beloved landmarks. But as with many historic hotels, their prime locations are attractive to developers who wish to cash in on real estate values by converting the hotels into condominiums. In the case of the Belleview Biltmore, its location on 21 acres beside Clearwater Harbor and the owners have entered into an agreement with a developer who plans to build houses and condominiums on the site. Friends of the Belleview Biltmore is working to rescue this icon of Victorian charm and Southern hospitality from being destroyed.
